Rohde & Schwarz release 40 GHz version of the SGU100A RF Upconverter

Published: 24th March 2015

Rohde & Schwarz has released a 40 GHz version of the SGU100A RF upconverter, expanding the frequency range of the SGS100A vector signal generator from 12.75 GHz to 40 GHz. This makes it the smallest microwave device of its kind on the market for continuous signals between 80 MHz and 40 GHz.

Though compact (two height units and ½ 19" rack width or one height unit and full 19" rack width ), the combination of the SGS100A and the SGU100A offers outstanding performance. The setup is ideally suited for ultrawideband aerospace and defence applications, as starting from 12 GHz the SGU100A can be used with a 2 GHz I/Q modulation bandwidth. Together with the SMW200A high end vector signal generator with a frequency range up to 40 GHz, a compact system with a maximum of three phase coherent outputs up to 40 GHz can be set up – perfect for testing phased array antenna systems.

The SGU100A is now available from MCS Test Equipment as a pure CW upconverter and as a version for I/Q-modulated signals.

Measuring the Control Loop Response of a Power Supply with an Oscilloscope

Power supplies and voltage regulators are typically designed to maintain a constant voltage over a particular current range. The supply should respond quickly to demand changes while maintaining a constant output, without excessive ringing or oscillation. To do this, power supplies are essentially amplifiers with a closed feedback loop.
